Square Meal Review of Hibiscus ?

While the Relais & Châteaux plaque hanging outside Hibiscus indicates that diners are in for something formally French, it doesn’t prepare visitors for the challenging, “experimental” nature of the cooking. Claude Bosi may have spent his apprenticeship in France but Hibiscus began life in Shropshire and that singular career path is evident in a highly original style, best sampled in the eight-course tasting menu. Intensely flavoured standouts might range from a rich bavarois of Norwegian king crab with sea leaves and cubes of jelllied smoked-haddock consommé to chestnut mushroom, coconut and curry ‘en cocotte’, an Asian-accented froth presented in a blue eggshell. A 2014 refurb replaced the previously dreary furnishings with beautiful table settings, striking blue upholstery, art on loan from local galleries and a private room. Hibiscus is firing on all cylinders: from intricate amuse-bouches to “attentive yet not intrusive” service, this is a top-flight gastronomic experiences. Great-value set lunch, too.

    The Cutlery Chronicles :: hibiscus, mayfair - review

    Following its revamp in early 2013, the dining room is now one of understated elegance and sophistication, without being stuffy - a pale wood floor, white walls with contemporary art, upholstered blue chairs, and a playful and brightly coloured theme found in the knife holders and water glasses.

    It also acquired a new bells-and-whistles development kitchen where Head Chef Claude Bossi and team unleash their creative juices on new menus. Not to mention front-of-house were a complete joy; when my companion lamented over wine being the first thing she would consume that day after a stressful morning, our waiter...

    Saying it straight :: Hibiscus. Thank God I liked it.

    As you walk in (and you could so easily miss it, given its unassuming frontage on Maddox Street) a comfortable sofa and a reception desk that could double as a headboard. I’m starting to think that I need to change that whole velvet-buttoned look. Everything in cool blues and creams, comfortable upholstery. Everyone and everything is quiet when we get there, at pensioner-friendly 6.30. It’s great though, because I could talk to the staff. I am that woman. I have turned into my mother. Kill me now.

    It’s quite Michelin formal, service wise. Some fabulous cashews. Tasting like salt and vinegar crisps. That’s...

Claude Bosi

To understand Claude Bosi, you must first understand his earliest influence - the French city of his birth, Lyon. In a country passionate about its produce and cuisine, Lyon is hailed as the food capital. This is a city where food is the very essence of its culture; a city without compromise where its people are the toughest food critics. His parents owned a successful restaurant in the city and Claude grew up immersed in a world of produce, seasonality and the disciplines of a professional kitchen. He went straight from school to catering college and then into his apprenticeship. His career took him then to Paris for the next four years, where he trained under some of the most influential Chefs of our time – Michel Rostang, Alain Passard and Alain Ducasse. Still at just 25 years old Claude wanted to improve his English, and so planned a year in the UK. He became Sous Chef at Overton Grange in rural in Shropshire. One year later he became Head Chef, and earned himself his first Michelin star shortly after. In 2000, an opportunity arose to purchase a site in the market town of neighboring Ludlow. This was opened as Hibiscus. Once again he achieved one Michelin star within the first year of opening – and the second shortly after in 2003. Always striving for a new challenge, Claude moved Hibiscus to its current position in central London, where it continues to be recognized for Claude’s passion for flavours, simplicity and elegance.
